Film details

by Rainer Werner Fassbinder

In a heavy atmosphere, the young and charming sailor Querelle lands in Brest. The harbor becomes the stage for a morbidly fascinating game where love-hate relationships thrive, with Querelle as both game-master and pawn. Inspired by Jean Genet's work, "Querelle de Brest", the film is as bizarre and spell-binding as the novel.
